Brood XI: Alive?

Filed under: Magicicada — Dan @ 11:29 am

It is possible that Brood XI is not extinct. Brood XI hasn’t been recorded since in 1950’s, however, David Marshall of the University of Connecticut “would not be surprised if there are small patches of them that have been missed since much of southern New England is not that densely inhabited”.

If you’re in the Connecticut, Massachusetts, or Rhode Island area this spring and you hear or see a Magicicada, please let us know.

    With much warmer weather about to arrive by Sunday, this will be the time to look. South facing slopes should be best. I will also be looking for possible stragglers around Connetquot River State Park soon and will travel to Princeton.
